I tied three different clumps of Tolumnia Jairak Flyer on the thing over the summer, and they are all spiking. This one is the first to "pop".

Love that Tolumnia! Are ya ready to talk about how you're going to get it into the house yet? I really want to try the same kind of mount (with less heft). You're my guinea pig to see if I can achieve it.

Hah! I can lift it to move it, but it is very heavy. For ease, I'll probably use a hand truck.

I just bought some 20-gauge clear vinyl, and will be building a PVC-framed enclosure for the winter.

Added later: I think that with a more convenient piece of driftwood - one with more of a "trunk" than this one had - you need not use quite so much concrete to hold it in place. Mine was short, so I added some long lag bolts through it to make it a "broader" base, but they were higher up the driftwood out of necessity.

I will experiment this winter. Maybe use that post hole stuff that's a two-part foam? Have to be able to easily get it in and out of basement. I really "need" one for my Tolumnia. And I still love, love, love the color of that Tol in the picture. Please keep me in mind if ya ever have to divide it!

The two other cultivars of Tolu Jaraik Flyer waited until I brought the "tree" in.



And folks wonder why you can't reliably ID plants from flowers.

Here's the one I posted earlier:
